Amazing Mold Putty - St. Patricks Day button ring!

 Have you ever loved a button so much that you just kept it in a pretty jar, wishing you could use it in a craft or make jewelry from it, but since it was your only one, did not? With Amazing Mold Putty, you can make a mold from your button and cast it to use for anything you want!
Here I will show your how to make this St. Patrick's Day button ring! 
 * * *
Start by gathering equal amounts of the white and yellow Amazing Mold Putty.
Mix putty together until one uniform color, no swirls of white.
Roll mixed putty in a ball, making sure all creases are smooth.
 Working on a  non stick surface, press button into ball. Make sure you push it deep enough,
but not all the way through. Let mold set with button inside for at least 15 minutes.
You'll know it's set when your finger does not leave a impression when you touch the mold.
 Pop out the button.
Gather your fill medium of choice. For a button ring, you can use resin, clay or Utee.
I melted clear Utee in a melting pot and added fine green glitter.
Then I poured the mix into my button mold.
Within 5 minutes it had set. I popped out my button and smoothed that little drip
you see by running the edge of the button along the hot plate.
 I made several button rings and found that I liked both sides of the button.
If you are just starting out using Amazing Mold Putty, stick with buttons first. My son wanted me to do a Lego ring, but it had too much detail and we must have shifted it when we formed the putty around it. Once the putty is set, it cannot be unset for reuse.
I remelted the button mistakes until I was happy with my results.
What I love the most about using Amazing Mold Putty
 is how easy it is to make treasures out of ordinary objects.
